Image segmentation, background identification, boundary detection, perceptual organization.


The most important problem in computer visualization is Image segmentation. A segmentation algorithm for outdoor image is proposed where perceptual organization plays a major role in finding the structurally challenging objects in the image. The background objects are normally unstructured and it can easily be identified as they are having homogeneous surface. The challenging task on heterogeneous surface is a structure object. The perceptual organization model is developed for getting the structural associations between the pieces of the structured objects. And will group them accordingly by detecting the boundaries of the structured object without any prior knowledge about those objects that is present in the image taken outdoor.
